    RadControls version

    RadUpload, RadGrid

    .NET version


    Visual Studio version


    programming language


    browser support

    IE/Safari for Windows 


    The application is basically an embedded Windows Media Player that plays files in a web page that have been uploaded into the RadGrid via the RadUpload.

    The application uploads a media file and then renames that file to avoid overwriting of files. The file is then displayed in a RadGrid... with a template column that includes a play button. Click the play button walla the file plays.

    NOTE for FireFox users: I have included some commented code to get the app to work with FireFox however it is buggy. Still working on this part but the app works fine for IE and Safari for Windows.

    This was a first attempt at creating this type of media application please submit improvements if you have any.

    You can view a working AJAXED version at the following URL (IE & Safari only... code for FireFox is included in the project):

    Hi sayitfast,

    Thank you very much for the time you spent on developing this demo project and posting it as a free online resource. This will be a nice starting point for everyone interested in developing video player application with RadGrid/RadUpload and broadcasting the uploaded files interactively in real time.

    We really appreciate your effort and added 7000 Telerik points to your account for the involvement. Feel free to update the demo at any given time to work flawlessly under Gecko-based browsers/Opera as well.

    Best regards,
    the Telerik team

    Thank you, nice one and just  what I needed!  It will be very nice if you get it to work in firefox. In the meantime, if you or anybody else need to get it working the alternative is to use a non-media player solution for FF.  I am using a .net  ajaxified JS player that works in all browsers EXECPT IE.
    This is a demo: http://www.themorningoutline.com/sample/AJAXtream.html 
    The reason it does not work in IE is that it is using base64 encoding that it is not supported by IE. I started working on modifying the player to work in IE using js Base64 Codec that works for IE (see my posting at http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/thread/b311D-hcggd.aspx ) but it's very complicated and I prefer to go with a hybrid solution . Incorporating the FF player into your solution should be fairly straight forward I think.

    You can accomplish this by using the Windows Media Player API:

    I have not experimented with this myself so I would not be of much use...

    In the default.aspx.cs file inside the InjectPlayer method you can comment out the top half of the code and uncomment the code below it. 

    i just tried it in Opera, Safari, FF, and IE 7, 8 and seems to work fine. IE 6 might be an issue.

    You can just replace the InjectPlayer method code with this.

    string InjectPlayer(string filePath)
        StringBuilder sa = new StringBuilder();
        // sa.Append("<center>");
        sa.Append("<OBJECT ID=\"Player\" Object Type=\"video/x-ms-wmv\" width=\"320\" height=\"305\" VIEWASTEXT > ");
        sa.Append("<PARAM name=\"autoStart\" value=\"True\">");
        sa.Append(string.Format("<PARAM name=\"SRC\" value=\"{0}\">", filePath));// IE needs this extra push when using MIME type not class id
        sa.Append(string.Format("<PARAM name=\"URL\" value=\"{0}\">", filePath));
        sa.Append("<PARAM name=\"AutoSize\" value=\"False\"");
        sa.Append("<PARAM name=\"rate\" value=\"1\">");
        sa.Append("<PARAM name=\"balance\" value=\"0\">");
        sa.Append("<PARAM name=\"enabled\" value=\"true\">");
        sa.Append("<PARAM name=\"enabledContextMenu\" value=\"true\">");
        sa.Append("<PARAM name=\"fullScreen\" value=\"false\">");
        sa.Append("<PARAM name=\"playCount\" value=\"1\">");
        sa.Append("<PARAM name=\"volume\" value=\"30\">  ");
        //  sa.Append("</center>");
        return sa.ToString();
